National HSI Awareness Week at UCSC

This year we celebrated National HSI Week on September 13 - September 19, 2021. National HSI Week celebrates and builds awareness of the work and important role HSIs play in improving access to education, advancing equity practices, and the contributions in their communities. National HSI Week is observed by colleges and universities across the nation. Our institution hosted a number of events and advertised other activities that are happening across the country. Additionally, on our Instagram (@ucsc.hsi) we featured nominated students who will be attending the HACU ¡Adelante! Leadership Institute, in addition to members of our faculty and staff at UCSC. 

We are delighted to share our virtual events with you: 

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 from 4:00 - 4:45 PM GANAS Graduate Pathways Information Session: GANAS Graduate is designed and positioned to unleash the potential of UCSC as a public Hispanic-Serving Research Institution (HSRI) – one of the few HSIs that is an R1 doctorate-granting university –by increasing the readiness of Latinx, low-income, and students of color to apply and succeed in graduate programs. Join this session to learn about our goals, activities, and the vast campus community we partner with on this initiative.
